Live life in the fast line do yuh? Feeling bogged down by the seemingly slow 7,200RPM the higher end/faster 2.5″ drives spin at? Western Digital would like to show you something. Their new WD S25 is a 10k, 2.5″ spinning mobile speedster that will bring even greater agility to those who are always on the go. Blow past previous benchmarks with a sustained read/write times of 128MB/s and a 16MB buffer. Further bolstering this speed demon attitude is the 3.0 GBPS and 6.0 GBPS connectivity options ensuring you don’t hit a bottle neck when it comes down to the finish line. In case you were wondering, WD’s S25 drive happens to be the first 2.5″ drive to claim that coveted 10k SAS nomenclature, ushering in a new era of minutely packaged speed. Naturally, spinning at such speeds sucks down more power than their slower siblings so full on mobile consumers may want to think twice about this drive in particular and instead opt for a speedy SSD. The S25 is currently shipping to several OEM’s and should start appearing for business users in the near future. Don’t forget your helmet and goggles…
